Item Description: Gottsberger, 1886. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fair. 1st Edition. First American edition, extremely scarce issue in wraps. New York: William S. Gottsberger, 1886. Three volumes in six. (First set: Before Tilsit) 322 pp. [1 ad]; 357 pp; (Second set: The Invasion) 321 pp.; 270pp. [9]; (Third set: Borodino) 290 pp. [4], 391 pp. [6]. 1st American Edition, 1st printing with dated title page and the publisher's imprint on all copyright pages. Wrappered (paperback) issue. This issue is mentioned in Bowker's The Annual American Catalogue of 1886, pg. 176. Follows a British edition by Vizetelly which omitted certain passages. Translated from the French edition by Clara Bell. Condition: Fair to poor condition. All six volumes are present with complete text blocks but all of the spines and some of the end papers (including some ads) and wraps are missing. Given the extremely fragile nature of these volumes, this is not too surprising. A previous owner numbered the volumes on their first remaining page in pencil. Text blocks are actually clean and in not in too bad of shape. Bindings often loose at ends. Volumes one and four are missing their wraps entirely. Volume two has a back cover. Volume six has front cover, creased and torn Volume two has a front cover. Volume three has both front and back covers and a bit of its spine. An exceptionally scarce first wrappered issue of the first complete English-language translation of Tolstoy's masterpiece. They are largely identical to the hardcover issue, as far as we can tell, but with different bindings; originally they retailed separately for 50 cents each. We have not yet been able to find any evidence of any other surviving sets of this issue, institutionally or for sale. We have opted to leave the volumes completely unrestored and partially disbound, as we purchased them, leaving rebinding options up to the buyer. Bookseller Inventory # 140905107

"The heart of this drama is the metamorphosis of five families, some peasant, some aristocratic, amid the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Each individual is immersed in experiences and conversations elucidating Tolstoy's themes of self-sacrifice and self-indulgence, anguish and ecstasy, diplomacy and deception, and religion and perdition. The complexities of character and plot are sometimes enigmatic, and names are often exhausting to recollect, but the genius of this book is everlasting. An entire universe is created by one of the foremost thinkers of the 19th century" (B. Mann). Harris, p. 152. HBS 67130. $12,500. Bookseller Inventory # 67130

Item Description: London Vizetelly & Co. [n.d. ca. 1887], 1887. 3 volumes. First English Edition, early issue. (The slug notes a "Third Edition", but the sheets of these earliest printings were run from the original type-settings and were not changed). 8vo, handsomely bound in three-quarter period maroon morocco over marbled boards. vii, 429; 360; 387 pp. A handsome copy and a very pleasing set. Rarely encountered, this is a fine early printing of the First English Edition of Tolstoy’s greatest novel. VERY SCARCE HANDSOMELY BOUND PRINTING OF THIS GREAT CLASSIC, VERY WELL PRESERVED. Tolstoy’s epic of the Napoleonic wars has few peers in world literature; John Galsworthy described it as "the greatest novel ever written." E. M. Forster, in his Aspects of the Novel , declared that "(N)o English novelist is as great as Tolstoy, that is to say, has given so complete a picture of man’s life, both on its domestic and heroic side." Similarly, De Vogüé, the "greatest French authority on Russian literature.remarks that:.’ It is a faithful picture of life: the experience of a traveller thrown among a society new to him--constraint and boredom at first, then curiosity and at last a firm attachment. I admit sotto voce that I know nothing superior to it in any literature.’" (intro) The Maudes' translation was first published in the World Classics series in 1933 and is based on Tolstoy's own final revisions. War and Peace an be said to stand "at the crucial point where the modern novel begins." Tolstoy’s immediate predecessors in the development of the modern novel were thegreat French analytical novelists of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, Rousseau and Stendhal, who influenced Tolstoy greatly. Tolstoy registered this change in distinguishing his method--the point of view method--from the old dramatic method, such as found in Dostoevsky. Very loosely, the point of view method did not simply relate words and actions of characters, as in the dramatic method, but provided psychological insight as to why characters thought and acted the way they did. "Tolstoy in War and Peace transcends the limit of the novel and does what had previously been done by the epic. Thus War and Peace has to be put in a group not with Madame Bovary, Vanity Fair, or the Mill on the Floss, but with the Iliad, in the sense that when the novel is finished nothing is finished--the stream of life flows on, and with the appearance of Prince Andrew’s son the novel ends on the beginning of a new life." ‘Tolstoy’s original intention was to recount the Decembrist movement which culminated in the revolt of 1825 and was the predecessor to the "back to the people" movement of the seventies and the revolutionary movements that culminated in the communist overthrow of tsarist power in 1917. However, when Tolstoy began to investigate the Decembrist conspiracy, he began to delve deeper into the historical events preceding it. That is, to the French invasion in 1812 and the Russian events leading up to the invasion. Although Tolstoy was interested in the role that the Masons played in opposing tsarist power, these parts were probably made ambiguous by the censors of the time.’. Bookseller Inventory # 22279

Item Description: The Folio Society, UK, 2014. Hardcover, Slipcased. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: None issued. Igor Karash (illustrator). 1st Edition. Signed, dated and remarqued by the illustrator Igor Karash Synopsis : Among the most influential novels of all time, Leo Tolstoy¿s War and Peace is set against the great political events surrounding Napoleon¿s attempted invasion of Russia in 1812. Boasting over five hundred characters, the sprawling narrative focuses on the fortunes and struggles of five aristocratic families. Featuring both real and fictional protagonists, from lowly foot soldiers to Napoleon himself, Tolstoy weaves a literary and historical epic that has never been equaled. This edition features the highly acclaimed 2007 translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. Much criticism has been levelled against previous attempts to ¿anglicise¿ and ¿smooth¿ Tolstoy¿s often idiosyncratic prose. Here the translation remains as close as possible to the original language. Tolstoy¿s tendency towards repetition, which, as critic and author James Wood writes in his new preface, he uses ¿almost liturgically, or psalmically¿, was removed in earlier Victorian translations as it did not fit the mould of what was considered ¿good writing¿. As Pevear states in his introduction, ¿We have tried to be true to Tolstoy¿s rhetorical power, his sharp irony, and his astonishing delicacy.¿ Igor Karash¿s poignant illustrations, 15 in each volume, including two double-page spreads, often spill out of their margins. Much like the prose, the images are both intimate and sweeping, mirroring the expansive nature of Tolstoy¿s history, and the individual¿s place within it. This edition also features a striking binding design with the spines blocked in gold and coloured page tops and 30 colour illustrations by Igor Karash. It is a fine edition of one of the great masterpieces of world literature. A sprawling social panorama, a brilliant work of historical philosophy, a masterpiece of Russian storytelling ¿ Tolstoy¿s magnum opus has always evaded classification. Homeric in tone and biblical in scope, it is unquestionably one of the most important books ever written. From the flash of a smile at a genteel Petersburg soirée to the sweeping arm of la grand armeé tugging at the very fabric of Europe, the details that Tolstoy draws on in his writing are as varied and boundless as Russia itself. As the journalist Isaac Babel commented after turning the last page, ¿If life could write, it would write like Tolstoy.¿ Told predominantly through the lives of the Rostov and Bolkonsky families, and the naive aristocrat Pierre Bezukhov, the story spans the years 1805 to 1812, as Napoleon¿s armies draw inexorably closer to the heart of Russia. Under the gathering darkness of war, Tolstoy brings to life some of literature¿s richest characters: the impulsive, beguiling Natasha Rostov, the proud and ambitious Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, and the guileless Pierre Bezukhov, searching for spiritual fulfilment. This enthralling epic follows the interconnected marriages, affairs, heartbreaks and struggles of these very different aristocratic families, as Tolstoy uses the building blocks of strained partings and emotional reunions, deaths and loves, to shape his all-pervading masterpiece. The complexities of 19th-century Tsarist society are set against the chaos and terrors of war in a cinematic narrative that sweeps across the vistas of Austerlitz, Borodino¿s bloody fields and the burning city of Moscow. Tolstoy¿s descriptions, drawn from his own experience in the Crimean War, are chillingly real, and convey an astonishing level of detail, from the horrors of amputation to the panic and disbelief felt in the heat of the cavalry charge. As James Wood writes in his newly commissioned preface, Tolstoy aimed to ¿correct the ¿official¿ record ¿ truth, you feel, is being battled for, with whatever literary weapons come to hand¿. Tolstoy deftly weaves historical discourse with fictional prose, consistently subverting our traditional understanding of genre. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 001259
